We have been using LINA since SAP implementation . However now we are noticing that LINA continue depreciation beyond planned useful life ( depreciation extend by few months) and it also does curb. I understand that it is happening because of base method 0009 ( which allow both Dep. after planed life end and Curb) .
In my example
Asset planned useful life = 5 Yr. ( from April 2008 to March 2013)
Date of acquisition / Dep. start date : April 2008 ( we are following calendar year Jan to Dec)
Cost = $979
So monthly depreciation should be = $16.32
Monthly depreciation is correct from April 2008 to Dec 2012 , however from Jan 2014 , it depreciate $14.19 from Jan to March and , remaining $6.40 in April .
I know this is happening due to LINA ( base method 0009) , But is it a best practice to use LINA with above behavior. I think most of the companies use LINA for straight line depreciation , but is above behavior not an issue ?
Also I tested if I create a new Depreciation key with 0011 base method , there is no extension beyond planned useful life , but anybody has any experience using 0011 as base method , will there be other type of problems /issues with 0011 ?
